about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...

 

I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Doubt over Subsequent attack
As an American, I learned it as original 4th best. Later it was taught to me as standard present count (where standard means low from odd, high from even). I play this even though all my other signaling (other than suit preference) is upside down.
